Smell in Grand Junction census office was from pot growing next door
GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (AP) – Authorities say the strange odor seeping into a western Colorado Census Bureau office came from marijuana plants growing next door.
Grand Junction census workers say the smell was coming through the vents. Police got a search warrant Tuesday and found the plants next door in the same building.
Police say the building owner told them he was growing the plants for medical marijuana patients. Officers found state registration cards for medical marijuana users and are reviewing them.
No one has been arrested.
State law permits medical marijuana use but federal law does not. Last month, federal agents raided the home of a suburban Denver man who said he was a medical marijuana provider and found 224 pot plants. He’s been charged with possession.
